------------------------------------------------------------------------------
src/share/vm/gc/g1/g1CollectorPolicy.hpp
 738   virtual bool should_process_references() const {
 739     return true;
 740   }

Is the new behavior really strictly G1-specific?  Or should this be at
the CollectorPolicy level?

And I'm assuming some other G1 policy is going to provide a less
trivial implementation?
